Meet Lee Scott, Founder of WoW Power Walking
Lee is well known for her motivational and passionate work. She is often asked to share her love of power walking for fitness and marathons, yoga for balance, and eating for well being with both small and large groups. She continues to be invited to speak at marathons and fitness conferences across North America.
Lee Scott, B.A.Sc., M.A.
Lee trained to be a mechanical engineer, providing her with a good foundation for a methodical and research-based approach to her work in the health and fitness industry in which she has worked for more than 25 years. A dynamic coach, she developed the WoW Power Walking® program in 2002 and the Simple Secrets for a Great Walking Workout DVD-CD in 2006 as a way to engage people in a challenging and sustainable lifelong activity. She has coached thousands of walkers for fitness and marathons. She has power walked more than 100 distance events including 31 full marathons. Her personal best for the full marathon is 4:51:51 achieved at the 2011 Toronto Waterfront Marathon. There are two walk-only half marathons in North America: the KW Walking Classic in Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario and the New Albany Walking Classic in Ohio. In 2014, Lee was the overall winner of the women’s division in both events. She is also a 425-hour certified yoga instructor with the Mukti Yoga School. Her engaging presence and considerable knowledge of the latest research in exercise science and nutrition has made her a popular expert with North American magazines, fitness conferences, corporate workshops, marathon expos, and local television. Every day Lee is inspired by her clients who challenge themselves to embrace the outdoors and to push themselves to be the best they can be.

Yoga classes with Lee are wonderful – a beginner feels welcome, learns, and is motivated to keep going. Meanwhile, yoga experts are encouraged and led to even stronger yoga practice. Highly recommended.Nancy R. Oakville
Lee is the walking coach’s coach. She has created a thorough curriculum that breaks down the walking pattern into four basic progressions, each presented with helpful cues and takeaways. Not only will you be a better walking coach at the end of the eight week course, you will be a stronger walking athlete yourself.Katie D., Austin, TX
Lee’s coaching makes all the difference for power walkers at all levels. Her proven methods of interval training and hill work, combined with her positive attitude and decades of experience, will prepare you for any race. Her great advice to “trust the training” carried me through a recent marathon. Above all, her classes are fun, friendly and inclusive.Dianne B., Toronto
